Default b2p anxeity?
Lately I've been trying to do some more blow-to-pops, but I'm having a bit of trouble. I've done them in the past, almost all accidentally when the balloon had a defect or intentionally with a pump, but trying to do them with my mouth, I... well, chicken out when they get really tight and pop them some other way. I don't know what it is, fear of the bang at point-blank range I guess?

Anyone else feel something like this, or know ways to smooth it over a little?

I know exactly what you mean, I usually feel the same way also. It's rare that I actually go all the way with a B2P.

I know many people talk about how they overcame it with ear plugs. Maybe as an added "shield" you could also wear sunglasses or goggles to help you feel more safe about doing a B2P

Most of the time when I B2P it's because I'm also masturbating (sorry if that's TMI). But the euphoric effect takes my mind off of everything else, including the balloon, and allows me to be more careless when blowing it up, sometimes leading to a B2P

I've had that problem, too. First I tried using ear plugs, which helped me so far that I could do b2ps with them in most of the time. It didn't help me overcoming the - I don't want to say fear - let's say nervous feelings when a balloon got really tight and I didn't use any hearing protection. That wasn't good enough for me.

Something that helped me was, as stupid as it may sound, counting. Something like not allowing myself to blow less than 3 (or more, depends on the size of the balloon) breaths in a sequence. That way I didn't have to convince myself before each breath i put in. At least it rises the probability to pop the balloon within one blowing sequence.

Also I like the loud popping sound. But when I haven't heard it for a while, it gets me more nervous to start right away with b2p. In that case it helped me to pop one or two balloons in a different way (without ear plugs of course) to get used to it.

Hope that helps.

I get anxiety of a different kind when I do btp. I actually like the noise and the excitement of making it pop. The feeling of power when the pressure equalizes and it gets really had to blow, but you make it anyway, is awesome.

My issue is the fear of getting smacked in the face. I think that's why I tend to stick to the normal sized ones when I do btp. I've gotten hit in the cheek right below the eye and that f'n stings man!

Same problem, I want to b2p, but just can't go through with it.

I've tried baking balloons, balloons previously inflated many times or vasoline. This is almost scarier, since it is less predictable and also more likely to snap in your eyes.

Bigger balloons seem scarier, and I have longer to change my mind. With smaller balloons, I usually get to the point where I can't blow anymore but the balloon won't pop.

As a kid and teenager, I used to love b2p, it was what I did whenever I got a balloon and no one was around or I just didn't care what people thought. I think balloons today are much harder to blow and louder, but that could just be me that changed.

I've discovered an odd thing recently - my favoured balloons for blow to pop are anything between 18"-24" with the Tuftex and Qualatex 24" heading the list, followed by the Greek Swan 24". These three always give me a measure of pleasurable apprehension when I've gotten them blown up tight and fully necked, but I bought a few 30" and 36" balloons a few weeks ago and find that it's much easier for me to blow to pop them and that I get no anxiety or apprehension at all, even when they are blown up very large. I've thought about this and have come to the conclusion that with the 24" balloons, it's very obvious when they are close to the limit - very tight, fully inflated neck, etc. - while the larger balloons don't generally get as much neck - I need to experiment here - and I can just keep on blowing without any real idea as to when the balloon will burst. The bang is therefore a nice surprise and is achieved without the heart pounding sensation I get with a long necked one. The bigger sizes also don't seem to burst quite as loud since there's usually a bit less pressure in them. Has anyone else had a similar feeling?

Whenever I buy balloons or some times condoms
I start to get a bit scared when they get big and tight..
But it's just awesome when they finally pop

So, I can B2P inflatables (big ones too), but NOT balloons. It is strange but I think it is because I use a Shop Vac to blow up the inflatables and my mouth for balloons. I always have this fear they will pop and hit my eye. This may not help much, but hey, you're not alone!

I always afraid of blowing up balloons to pop, but recently with the support of my wife, I've began to lose the fear, and enjoy more the experience.
